Children's Rights

By Guess Who

This is a letter to the rich mainly
Talking about the problems we suffer daily
When i say rich i don’t mean the wealthy
Who i really mean are the people who have the capacity
Of supporting us and spending money fluently

These are the people we are aiming
These are the people in which we are believing
So don’t abandon us and be so disappointing
In you we trust, in you we have faith, for you we give everything
So don’t abandon us and be so disappointing

As you know half of us are abandoned
Most of us maltreated
Dying from hunger, thirst or even deserted
In schools, streets and every public place we are harmed
Orphans we are, illegal we are, poor we are, we’re always ignored

Why don’t we have a family stem? ? ?
The parent’s fault, but we pay the price of the problem
Am i an experimental rat to endure such venom?
Am i big enough to work in a mine, collecting tin, copper and gem?
Our time has passed, we are used to it now… we are condemned

A day will come where we will revolute and fight
World spring throughout day and night
For we will appear over earth and see the light
We don’t demand power, we demand to be seen by public sight
We demand justice and most of all we demand child’s right
